Remembering Pauline Prior
Pauline Prior, née Condon, was born in Nottingham on the 10th July 1955 to her beloved Mother, Esther Condon.
Pauline was the second eldest of four siblings and is survived by Seán, Karen and Kevin.
Pauline’s family moved from Baker Street to Waterdown Road, Clifton in 1959. Pauline attended Blessed Robert Widmerpool Primary School and then Corpus Christi School at Wilford. It was whilst attending Corpus Christi School that her lifelong passion and commitment for basketball began.
She finished her formal education at Basford Hall College, during which time she won her first international cap playing for England U17 followed by caps at U19 level.
In September 1972, she started work at The City Treasury as a Housing Rebate Clerk where she met her devoted husband, Christopher David Prior. Pauline married Chris on the 10th July 1982.
They settled firstly in The Meadows and then Gedling. On the 27th February 1987, Pauline gave birth to her only child, Siobhán Eveline Prior. Her beloved, little family lived in Gedling for 26 years before moving to Gotham in 2011.
Following her role at The City Treasury, Pauline moved to Sport England where she was Office Manager for the East Midlands branch. Her final career move was to her dream job, working for Nottingham Wildcats Trust; managing the Nottingham Wildcats Arena from October 2001 until her retirement from full time work.
She will always be remembered for the fingerprints she left on every heart she touched.
Her kindness was endless; generosity of spirit never ceasing; her passion and love without parallel.
Her strength of character to overcome, awe-inspiring.
A fighter to the end.
We’ll see you soon.
